The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) holds business schools to high reporting standards, which is why more than half of all AACSB-accredited schools of business use Activity Insight. Now, our new Required Fields Audit Report makes AACSB reporting even easier by surfacing missing faculty data so they can be updated and included. This ensures that tables 2-1, 15-1 and 15-2 reflect all of your faculty’s applicable qualifications and accomplishments.
How It Works
Corporate leaders rely on a “single source of truth,” usually an enterprise resource planning database, for reporting on and making decisions for their companies. Universities using the right faculty activity reporting solution have a similar system of record, which is especially important for schools of business. After all, if your business school’s data isn’t accurate and complete, what does that say about your institution’s ability to educate the next generation of business leaders?
Collaborating with many clients on AACSB reporting helped us identify universal needs, which led to our table-specific reports. These reports are provided to all schools of business using Activity Insight, and can be further customized to reflect faculty activities as you define them. In fact, customizing Activity Insight to collect and report on faculty activities is critical for accreditation as well as reporting to other stakeholders including legislators and funding sources.
Our new Required Fields Audit Report provides the finishing touch to your AACSB tables by identifying faculty’s missing activities. The report also contains an embedded link to easily email a faculty member with data missing from AACSB-related fields. Faculty can then add or correct activities they may have mis-categorized ahead of final reporting.
What Clients Are Saying
Clients who tested the new report give it stellar reviews. “I found the Required Fields Audit Report immensely helpful,” reported Charles White, Acting Dean of the College of Business and Economics at Longwood University. “It’s a reassurance that faculty and their accomplishments are pulled into the AACSB tables, and we’re including the right data.”
“Any audit report at any time is a fantastic idea, but this is going to be invaluable for anyone using Activity Insight for AACSB reports,” said Raejean Tanyar, Director of Accreditation Information Processes, H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship, Nova Southeastern University. “So much of accreditation is based off of these tables.”
